I'm the author of Factor5. It was done by joke, and with the purpose to learn how to write a factorization program. It uses full GMP libraries, with no fancy optimization, and still can use up to 16 threads.

Oh, and can work on exponents whose size is only limited by the memory of your computer.

Yep, I'm proud of it, it's my baby...
